The Full Monty Tickets On Sale Now

Tickets are on sale now to the Numerica Performing Arts Center’s 2018 Hot August Nights production of THE FULL MONTY. Producers Don Fox and Jaime Donegan will lead a local cast in 12 performances of the Broadway musical sponsored by Tom K. Michael, DDS, PS. The show will run for three weeks: August 2-4, 8-11, 15-18 with Wednesday and Thursday performances at 7:00pm, Friday and Saturday performances at 8:00pm, and a matinee on August 11 at 2:00pm.

The Full Monty follows a group of unemployed steelworkers from Buffalo (played by Mark Wavra, Ernest Palmer, Brian Higgins, Matthew Pippin, David James, and John Mausser). After spying on their wives at a “Girls’ Night Out,” the group sees how much the ladies enjoy watching male strippers. Jealous, out of work, and feeling emasculated, the men come up with a bold and unclothed way to make some quick cash. In preparing, they find themselves extremely exposed; not merely physically but emotionally. As they conquer their fears, self-consciousness and prejudices, the men come to discover that they’re stronger as a group, and the strength that they find in each other gives them the individual courage to “let go”. Parental guidance recommended.

Hot August Nights is known for its unique seating – and audiences can expect the same intimate seating for The Full Monty. Set entirely on the Numerica PAC stage in proscenium-style seating, ticket prices are $27-$45 with a VIP booths option for 4 people at $200.

“Giving back to a community benefits all who live there,” says presenting sponsor Tom Michael. “We are proud to be giving back to the Wenatchee Valley by sponsoring this year’s Hot August Nights production of The Full Monty. It is shows like this that support our local performing arts center and the amazing people that work and present there. Art is important – support your local theater.”

For information and tickets, visit www.numericapac.org, call 509-663-ARTS, or visit the Numerica PAC box office at the Stanley Civic Center on Wenatchee Avenue. Summer hours are 12pm – 5pm. Support for The Fully Monty is provided by Beckstead Electric, Central Washington

The Fully Monty is based on the book by Terrence McNally; Music and Lyrics by David Yazbek. Based on the motion picture, released by Fox Searchlight Pictures, written by Simon Beaufoy, produced by Uberto Pasolini and directed by Peter Cattaneoe. Presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI).

Numerica Festival of Trees Raises $97,000 for the Numerica PAC

The numbers are in and the 2017 Numerica Festival of Trees, held November 16-19, raised $97,000 in revenue for the Numerica Performing Arts Center. This is the highest amount raised in the past five years of the Numerica Festival of Trees. 

The 2017 Numerica Festival of Trees, “It’s A Wonderful Life”, was coordinated by Camille Cadman and a team of dedicated community volunteers, sponsored by Numerica Credit Union. Numerica PAC Executive Director Matt Cadman says, “This Festival experience was such a community celebration.  We had more people attend our various FOT events this November than ever before.  It may be cliché to say ‘It takes a village’, but that does not make the expression less true.  My thanks to the dozens and dozens of tireless community volunteers who made our 2017 Numerica Festival of Trees so joyful and successful.” 

Community support is at the foundation of the Numerica Festival of Trees. The Numerica Performing Arts Center would like to thank Numerica Credit Union for presenting the 2017 Festival of Trees, as well as the presenting sponsors of the events: Confluence Health, Ford & Marlys Barrett, Davis Furniture, Macy’s, North Cascades Bank, and our media sponsors ALPHA Media, Country 104.7 KKRV, Sunny FM and NCW Media. 

January Events at the Numerica PAC

The Numerica Performing Arts Center kicks-off the New Year with a variety of performances, beginning with the celebration of Martin Luther King Jr. Day and L.A. Theatre Works’ THE MOUNTAINTOP on January 12. The month continues with the January Monthly Movie on the Big Screen: BACK TO THE FUTURE on January 18, and MARC COHN featuring special guests THE BLIND BOYS OF ALABAMA on January 25.

The Mountaintop

Winner of the prestigious Olivier Award for Best New Play, The Mountaintop by Katori Hall is rife with humor and political jabs, while giving the audience a glimpse at the human side of Martin Luther King Jr.  Hours after his famed final speech, punctuated by the immortal line, “I’ve been to the mountaintop,” the celebrated Reverend reveals his hopes, regrets, and fears, creating a masterful bridge between mortality and immortality. L.A. Theatre Works presents this live radio theatre production, starring film, television, and stage actors Karen Malina White and Gilbert Glenn Brown; directed by Shirley Jo Finney.

L.A. Theatre Works’ The Mountaintop by Katori Hall is Thursday, January 12 at 7:30pm. Tickets are $27-$31 with discounts for seniors and youth, and increased prices on show day. This performance is sponsored by Karen Pugh, Vita Green LLC, and Warm Springs Inn & Winery.

Back to the Future

In this 1980s sci-fi classic, small-town California teen Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox) is thrown back into the ’50s when an experiment by his eccentric scientist friend Doc Brown (Christopher Lloyd) goes awry. Traveling through time in a modified DeLorean car, Marty encounters young versions of his parents, and must make sure that they fall in love or he’ll cease to exist. Even more dauntingly, Marty has to return to his own time and save the life of Doc Brown.

The January Monthly Movie on the Big Screen is January 18 at 6:30pm and tickets are only $3. This movie is sponsored by the Keeping It Reel Movie Club and media sponsors ALPHA Media, Country 104.7 KKRV, and ESPN Radio 900 & 1020.

Marc Cohn featuring special guests The Blind Boys of Alabama

After winning a GRAMMY for his soulful ballad “Walking in Memphis,” Marc Cohn solidified his place as one of this generation’s most compelling singer/songwriters, combining the precision of a brilliant tunesmith with the passion of a great soul man. Cohn followed up his debut with two more releases in the 1990s, at which point TIME magazine called him “one of the honest, emotional voices we need in this decade”. In celebration of the 25th anniversary of his platinum-selling debut album, Cohn proudly released Careful What you Dream: Lost Songs and Rarities and the bonus album, Evolution of a Record, featuring never-before-heard songs and demos dating back to years before his debut album and the Grammy Award that followed. Additionally, he put together a 25th anniversary concert tour featuring special guests The Blind Boys of Alabama.

The Blind Boys of Alabama have the rare distinction of being recognized around the world as both living legends and modern-day innovators. They are not just gospel singers borrowing from old traditions; the group helped to define those traditions in 20th century and almost single-handedly created a new gospel sound for the 21st. Since the original members first sang together as kids at the Alabama Institute for the Negro Blind in the late 1930s (including Jimmy Carter, who leads the group today), the band has persevered through seven decades to become one of the most recognized and decorated roots music groups in the world. The Blind Boys have attained the highest levels of achievement in a career that spans over 75 years and shows no signs of diminishing.

There are less than 150 tickets left to see Marc Cohn and the Blind Boys of Alabama on Thursday, January 25 at 7:30pm. Tickets are $35-$39 with discounts for seniors and youth, and increased prices on show day. This performance is sponsored by Scott & Jennifer Anderson and The Goodfellow Family, with support by Central Washington Water, Karen Pugh, Vita Green LLC, Washington Trust Bank, and media sponsor News Radio 560 KPQ.

Don Fox and Jaime Donegan return this summer to produce a 3 week run of the musical comedy based on the motion picture. Auditions for The Full Monty will be held January 22-23 at the Numerica Performing Arts Center.

One of them, Jerry, declares that their show will be better than the Chippendales dancers because they will go “The Full Monty” (British slang for- strip all the way).

As they prepare for the show, working through their fears, self-consciousness, and anxieties, they overcome their inner demons and find strength in their camaraderie. Parental guidance recommended.

Director Jaime Donegan will be holding Open Auditions for all roles on January 22 at 5:00pm for women and 6:30pm for men and the Numerica PAC. Call backs will be held on January 23 starting at 5:30pm. The cast includes 11 male and 8 female characters that are normal, everyday working class people.
